The average American burns through about 558 gallons per gas per year. But with gas prices hitting $4 per gallon in some parts of the US (with no end in sight), road warriors can expect to spend more than $2,000 on gas all year.
H&R Block created the cool infographic below to show us just where that money is going.
Unsurprisingly, Uncle Sam pockets about $545.70 for every 558 gallons purchased, while he slaps a near-49 cent gas tax that rakes in $37 billion per year for the Highway Trust Fund, mass transit and leaking underground storage.
